“In Italy in the last 20 years the couple has changed a lot, it has gone in opposition to the family. Many times where there is a couple there is no family and where there is a family the couple is lost. These two and a half years of pandemic have created many inconveniences for the couple because forced coexistence within the walls of the house has increased conflicts, unfortunately also violence, in particular gender-based violence, but above all there has been a great drop in sexual desire”. Thus Maria Cristina Florini, psychologist, psychotherapist, sexologist and president of the Italian Sexology Center (Cis) addresses the issue of the decline in libido due to the health emergency. “The confirmation comes from various researches – explains Florini – researches that tell us how many problems regarding sexual identity have arisen even among the youngest adults, there has been an increase in conflict between couples and at the same time a huge decrease in sexual desire”. And Florini has no doubts about the objectives of the Cis, a scientific society established in December 1959: “the sexual health of individuals and couples remains our priority. The Italian Center of Sexology, one of the first scientific societies of sexology in Italy, has always dealt with the physical, clinical, scientific and training aspects of medical personnel, psychologists and the health professions. Its mission is the sexual health of individuals and couples”.
